Crazy for Cuties!

Call 'em Cuties. Call 'em clementines. Whatever you call them, those little balls of orange citrus goodness are addictive!

For the past several weeks, I've been stocking the kitchen with clementines for quick, easy snacking. They peel easier than an orange. They're approximately 45 calories a piece. And they're easy to take in a lunchbox.

What more can you ask for from a simple, healthy snack?

Do you enjoy clementines? It seems like people either love them or hate them. Please weigh in below in the comments section!

Note: Today's post is part of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. Each day during the month of April I'll highlight a letter of the alphabet with a healthy snack idea. Today is "C" day. Stop back tomorrow for another delicious tip!

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!

  2. I live for Clementine season (which, here, seems to be around Christmas). They weren't as good as last year, but... mmmm!

  3. If Clementines are those orange thingies in the bowl, here in South Africa we call them naartjies and they are delicious and very popular/common in winter. They peel very easily, can be very sweet and they can separate so easily they are easy to eat. Lovely quick critussy goodness without the juicy mess of an orange. Ideal for eating on the go or even giving to your small kids to eat on their own.

  4. Citrus is quite common where I live. They pack such a punch of vitamin C, a snack that really boosts the immune system.

  6. Love those! And you are right they do peel easier. So much easier to take to work and eat than an orange.

    1. Maybe the little one will grow into them! Have you tried peeling them and offering a small cup of yogurt dip to entice your child? ~Angela
